Did 2 dives here one day because the Jetty was too rough. Vis was about ~5ft current was manageable, but it did sweep away all the mud we kicked up chasing crabs and digging clams. Bottom is all mud, nothing very interesting, the dock pilings provide shelter to the usual suspects, lots of perch, some Dungeness, lots of red rock crab. Tons of clams! Picked up a limit of steamer clams in 1/2 a dive. Fun dive if there is nothing else diveable. Interesting note on the warning above about dive flags and boats, when I dove here it was salmon season so the bay was packed full of boats. Naturally we used a dive flag because we wanted to explore the outside of the dock pilings also. We placed the flag off the end of the dock in about 18-20ft of water. On our second dive we heard a boat right on top of us, when we surfaced under the pilings to investigate it was some fisherman in a small aluminum boat taking our dive flag and float!?!?!? We yelled at them and they threw it back in the water and sped off!
